Edsger Wybe Dijkstra: His Life, Work, and Legacy (ACM Books)
Friday, 05 August 2022

In this book, 31 computer scientists, including five recipients of the Turing Award, present and discuss Edsger Wybe Dijkstra's numerous contributions to computing science and assess their impact. Krzysztof R. Apt and Tony Hoare have collected the recollections of Dijkstra, one of the most influential researchers in the history of computer science. Several authors knew Dijkstra as a friend, teacher, lecturer, or colleague. Their biographical essays and tributes provide a fascinating multi-author picture of Dijkstra, from the early days of his career up to the end of his life.
